A Simplified Method of Elastic-Stability Analysis for Thin Cylindrical Shells

Description: "This paper develops a new method for determining the buckling stresses of cylindrical shells under various loading conditions. In part I, the equation for the equilibrium of cylindrical shells introduced by Donnell in NACA report no. 479 to find the critical stresses of cylinders in torsion is applied to find critical stresses for cylinders with simply supported edges under other loading conditions. In part II, a modified form of Donnell's equation for the equilibrium of thin cylindrical shells is derived which is equivalent to Donnell's equation but has certain advantages in physical interpretation and in ease of solution, particularly in the case of shells having clamped edges" (p. 285).

Critical Stress of Thin-Walled Cylinders in Axial Compression

Description: Empirical design curves are presented for the critical stress of thin-wall cylinders loaded in axial compression. These curves are plotted in terms of the nondimensional parameters of small-deflection theory and are compared with theoretical curves derived for the buckling of cylinders with simply supported and clamped edges. An empirical equation is given for the buckling of cylinders having a length-radius ratio greater than about 0.75.

Flight Investigation of the Effect of Boundary-Layer Suction on Profile-Drag Coefficient at Supercritical Mach Numbers

Description: Memorandum presenting flight tests with a fighter airplane to study the effect of boundary-layer suction aft of the shock wave on airfoil drag at supercritical Mach numbers and high Reynolds numbers. Airfoil chord force was determined from pressure-distribution measurements obtained at a range of Mach numbers at steady dives. Results of the tests showed no measurable effect of suction for the suction coefficient available.

Correlation of Physical Properties With Molecular Structure for Some Dicyclic Hydrocarbons Having High Thermal-Energy Release Per Unit Volume

Description: "As part of a program to study the correlation between molecular structure and physical properties of high-density hydrocarbons, the net heats of combustion, melting points, boiling points, densities, and kinematic viscosities of some hydrocarbons in the 2-n-alkylbiphenyl, 1,1-diphenylalkane, diphenylalkane, 1,1-dicyclohexylalkane, and dicyclohexylalkane series are presented" (p. 55).

Preliminary Investigation of Effects of Gamma Radiation on Age-Hardening Rate of an Aluminum-Copper Alloy

Description: "A preliminary investigation was made to determine the effects of gamma radiation on the age-hardening rate of an aluminum-copper alloy at temperatures of 32 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The gamma radiation from a 100-milligram radium source appeared to have no significant effect on the age-hardening rate of the alloy. A metallographic examination of the test specimens showed no microstructural changes that could be attributed to gamma radiation" (p. 1).

Description: The mean heat capacity of a sample of powdered beryllium carbide, a possible moderator material for a nuclear reactor, was determined as a function of temperature. A thin-walled stainless steel capsule containing the material was heated in an electric furnace and dropped into a water calorimeter. The following linear equation for mean heat capacity over the temperature range 50 f C-T f C as a function of temperature, T, was derived from the data by the method of least squares: C/sub p/ = 0.299 + 2.16 x 10/sup -4/ T f C el temperatures 0.005 cal gm/sup -1/( f C)/sup -1/. The numerical value of C/sub p/ expressed by this equation is also equal to the mean heat capacity in Btu lb/sup -1/( f F)/sup -1/. (auth)

Measurements in Flight of the Flying Qualities of a Chance Vought F4U-4 Airplane: TED No. NACA 2388

Description: From Summary: "The results of flight tests to determine flying qualities of a Chance Vought F4U-4 airplane are presented and discussed herein. In addition to comprehensive measurements at low altitude (about 8000 ft), tests of limited scope were made at high altitude (about 25,000 ft)."

Estimation of F-3 and F-4 knock-limited performance ratings for ternary and quaternary blends containing triptane or other high-antiknock aviation-fuel blending agents

Description: Charts are presented that permit the estimation of F-3 and F-4 knock-limited performance ratings for certain ternary and quaternary fuel blends. Ratings for various ternary and quaternary blends estimated from these charts compare favorably with experimental F-3 and F-4 ratings. Because of the unusual behavior of some of the aromatic blends in the F-3 engine, the charts for aromatic-paraffinic blends are probably less accurate than the charts for purely paraffinic blends.

Flight Test of the Aerojet 7KS-6000 T-27 Jato Rocket Motor

Description: "A flight test of the Aero jet Engineering Corporation's 7KS-6000 T-27 Jato rocket motor was conducted at the Langley Pilotless Aircraft Research Station at Wallops Island, Va, to determine the flight performance characteristics of the motor. The flight test imposed an absolute longitudinal acceleration of 9.8 g upon the rocket motor at 2.8 seconds after launching. The total impulse developed by the motor was 43,400 pound-seconds, and the thrusting time was 7.58 seconds" (p. 1).

Investigation of a thin wing of aspect ratio 4 in the Ames 12-foot pressure wind tunnel 4 : the effect of a constant-chord leading-edge flap at high subsonic speeds

Description: Report presenting wind-tunnel tests of a semispan model of a thin sharp-edged unswept wing of aspect ratio 4 and taper ratio 0.5 equipped with a full-span, constant-chord, leading-edge flap. The effectiveness of the leading-edge flap in improving the lift-drag ratio of the wing was investigated over a range of Mach and Reynolds numbers. Results regarding the lift characteristics, drag characteristics, pitching-moment characteristics, and lift-drag ratio are provided.

Icing-protection requirements for reciprocating-engine induction system

Description: From Summary: "Despite the development of relatively ice-free fuel-metering systems, the widespread use of alternate and heated-air intakes, and the use of alcohol for emergency de-icing, icing of aircraft-engine induction systems is a serious problem. Investigations have been made to study and to combat all phases of this icing problem. From these investigations, criterions for safe operation and for design of new induction systems have been established. The results were obtained from laboratory investigations of carburetor-supercharger combinations, wind-tunnel investigations of air scoops, multicylinder-engine studies, and flight investigations. Characteristics of three forms of ice, impact, throttling, and fuel evaporation were studied."
